Summary

Building Construction: Methods and Materials for the Fire Service, Second Edition, emphasizes the impact that an understanding of the principles of building construction has on firefighting strategy. Written by an author with extensive knowledge and experience in both the fire service and construction industries, it explains building materials and processes that are involved in the construction of structures and provides students with the knowledge required to operate safely and effectively within residential or commercial buildings. Discussions of actual incidents experienced by the author and case studies containing critical thinking questions give students a better understanding of what to expect in the field.

Author Biography

Michael Smith  worked for over 35 years with the fire service, retiring at the rank of Deputy Fire Chief. He has also worked for over 30 years in the construction industry, because very few firefighters made enough money to work only one job.

He holds an A.S. degree in Fire Science; a B.S. degree in Construction Management; and an M.A. degree in Fire and Public Administration. He is a graduate of the Executive Fire Officers Program at the National Fire Academy. He is also a Certified Municipal Manager from George Washington University.

 

He is currently involved with Lecturing, Consulting, and Emergency Management for the Federal Government and the US Military. He can be reached through the publisher.
